Coping activity preferred by people and its effectiveness depend on a number of personality and social factors related to the specific character of a difficult situation. In the coping process, considerable significance is attributed to personality variables - including the ability to find a sense of purpose in life. The article attempts to empirically determine the nature of the relationship between a sense of purpose in life and coping styles used by young adults with visual impairments and nondisabled young adults. Correlation analysis showed there was a connection between the participants' sense of purpose in life and the coping styles they preferred. A higher sense of purpose in life co-occurred with a preference for more adaptive coping styles in young adults with visual impairments and nondisabled young adults. On the other hand, a lower sense of purpose in life was related to less adaptive coping styles, which shows that it is reasonable to take a positive stance on the hypothesis formulated.
